WWE has released the first promo video for the event, which you can view in the player below. WWE has not yet announced a theme for the next Takeover, but the video does play into the fact that February 14th is Valentine’s Day.

NXT has a penchant for reviving classic pay-per-view themes. In 2020, we saw NXT shows branded with In Your House, Halloween Havoc and WarGames. The ‘St. Valentine’s Day Massacre PPV’ event from 1999 would be a logical option here.

To get an idea of the title defenses we might see, here is a roll call of NXT‘s reigning champions:

  • NXT Champion: Finn Balor
  • Women’s Champion: Io Shirai
  • North American Champion: Johnny Gargano
  • Tag Team Champions: Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch
  • Cruiserweight Champion: Santos Escobar
